Someone just told me that docs that are either longer or shorter than the A4 size during scanning and uploading at the visa office will be rejected so I need to make copies of those docs to ensure it’s A4 size.

Please house, how genuine is the above point and can you guide on the process and what is expected.

Thanks

It’s true, you have to make copies of all documents that are not in A4 size.

Hello house. I intend to travel on the 15the of Aug but due to one reasons or the other, I couldn't . In my application, I'm going on 10 days vacation Now I'm planning to travel any moment from now and I'm changing my mind to reduce it to 8 days. Reasons for that Is to cut my expenses.
My question is ... will there be a problem at the poe?

@All

I'm just going to say this for the sake of the gullible members here..

If you are refused a visa and you strongly felt that the ECO made a mistake then simply write a letter of complain pointing out those areas the ECO got it wrong and your application will be revisited again.

Do not pay anybody for such letter, don't be deceived by some people asking you to contact them so as to get you a letter for a fee.

Letter of complain does not have any format and does not have to be written by an immigration lawyer or solicitor, anybody can write one.

If somebody can't help you openly here and requested for private discussion then there is something fishy going on

Please which email address can we send it to? Thanks.

Hello guys. I was just refused a uk visit visa. During my application, I had over 6 million in my account. My salary is 300k each month, plus I have additional income of around 200k+ every month as well, which I stated during the application. But it seems that they didn't take account of my additional income. What did I do wrong and what can I do to correct it. Any response/help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you



" You have declared that you are employed and state that you earn 300,000 NGN (£672.05 Converted on Oanda.com, 05/09/2019) per month. You state that you spend 160,00 NGN (£358.43) per month on living costs. You state that your trip to the UK will cost 1,000,000.00 NGN (£2,240.17) which equates to over 7 months disposable income on a 7 days trip. Your proposed expenditure of your visit casts doubt on your intentions to visit the UK. "

I think you need to upload the actual refusal letter and blur out your personal details so that the experts here can help you out better. By the way, when did you do your biometrics and did they send the refusal to you via email?

I tried to upload, for some reason, I couldn't. That was why I typed out the part that contained the reason for refusal. I got a letter of refusal through DHL along with my passport.

Okay, did you write a cover letter to explain the 200k+ to them? Your budget of 1m for 7days trip is a bit much, let’s say flight 220k, living expenses 100k for 7days sounds more realistic. That’s 320k which would have been a little bit above twice your monthly disposable income(just my opinion). Anyway, Just wait a little bit and the experts on this forum would give you a reply that would be much more helpful.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by giselle237: 2:24pm On Sep 17, 2019
we have been told to keep our uk expenditure within 2 times our DISPOSABLE INCOME.
In my opinion budgeting 1million naira for a 7 days trip is much... are you a first timer?
This was way over overrr your DISPOSABLE income... thats is after ur monthly spending money has been deducted...

Your budget for a 7 days trip is was too high...£ 1200~ £1400 would have been perfect but it looks like you want to impress the ECO that u have enough cash in yr accate... I must say... Well you just shot yourself on the leg. Although this is what we call medicine after death, but next time , Try to cut your budget to -
Flight- £550
Hotel- £350
bta- £300-£500
Total- £1200/ £1400

Give it some time then reapply so it wont look like ur desperate. Follow that budget above and u will see that the lord is good. For everone reading.. UK visa is not ponmon and i realized so many applicant do have issue when it comes to presenting a well run account statement. To avoid issues ,.Open a new account as to where ONLy your salary would be paid and avoid any other funds to be remitted in there... Then gather other genuune documents n apply. Then we will help u praise God

Yes its my first time. My disposable income is around 400k every month, if you include my additional income. But they didn't include that. But yes, I take your point.

Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 4 by giselle237: 3:23pm On Sep 17, 2019
Can it be upto 400k again?
The letter says your monthly expenditure is 160k .. take that from ur salary of 300k that will remain 140k ... plus lets say you add up this additional income per month of 200k.. thats 140 +200...

Next time just stick to what has worked for majority.. run your budget closely and your account closely with your salary.. and try not to exceed 2ce the disposable income.
You earn well so this visa is feasible.
reduce your monthly spending next time(declaring 160k from ur salary is high) so that you have enough money from your salary earnings to serve as the main fund for the trip so as not to confuse ECO.. also hope you submit all relevant documents showing origin of proof every fund that made your account balance to run into 6 million..

Yes, I should have written a cover letter about my additional income. I guess we live and learn.

It took about 19 days to get a decision from them.

do you have other travel history?
if you genuinely can prove your case of how 6million was accumulated and how it is your money and that you have saved for this vacation over a while and want to spend 1m on a vacation as it is just a small fraction of what you have... then I think you can explain your case in a letter of complaint. You can also include that the ECO forgot to take into consideration your additional income which you stated in your application.

... if this is the only clause for refusal...
Basically if you have reason to believe they have wronged you, make your case before them by emailing the embassy and UKVI dont forget to explain your case very well

Sorry about the refusal man. I am not an expert on this sort of thing but my advice will be to reapply and address the points that were raised for the refusal like the cost of your travel does not tally with how much you earn per month.

Address those points with evidence and you should get the visa I reckon
